's paranoid talk. of course you can trust obama care. in the state of california you can't. the obama care exchanges have been passing out personal information to insurance companies which then market that information using that information, they market their services. >> these aren't even people that signed up. these are people that took a cursory glance, maybe filled out part of an application. >> they're getting phone calls from insurance companies saying, hey, we understand you're looking for insurance. how can we be of assistance. would you like to pay us? peter levy, covered california, listen to this quote, see if you are comforted by this. he's using comforting words. he said i can imagine some people may be upset, but i can see a lot of people will be comforted and relieved at getting the help that they need by navigating a confusing process. >> and the reason they're saying they're doing this is because, of course, they're lined on their enrollment deadlines that they're trying to meet. also they're saying that we're not giving out any personal information like social security in

-- verifyble. when this bill was being talked about again, back in 2009, shortly after mr. obama became our 44th president, it was estimated that there was something like 47 million people in this country, mr. speaker, who through no fault of their own except couldn't afford it didn't have health insurance. well, when you really go through those numbers and i have a book with me that i'm going to reference and i want to give proper attribution, the name of the book is "the top 10 myths of american health care: a citizen's guide." maybe it could be a patient's guide. and this is written by sali pipes -- sally pipes. and she talks about in this book, she talks about that 47 million. something like 15 million of hose 47 million make more than $50,000 a year. indeed, some make more than $75,000 a year, mr. speaker. and they've just decided that they don't want health insurance, that they will pay as they go. and there's nothing wrong with that. i don't advise it. i think everybody should at least have catastrophic coverage. but be that as it may, this is america. we have to insist on enjoying our

snowy white house. president obama spoke yesterday where he talked about essentially the fact that he doesn't believe this is a done deal. he said, look, the chances of this deal with iran actually being ultimately successful are about 50/50. he also underscored the point that, look, this is a test. according to this administration, it's a six-month deal aimed at trying to see how serious iran really is about scaling back its nuclear programs. the president highlighting the fact that inspectors are in iran and the significance of that. again, essentially saying this is not a done deal, but it's something that -- it's a first step that he believes needs to be taken. important to point out he was speaking to a largely israeli audience, an audience that is skeptical of this deal that feels as though it doesn't go far enough. here's a little bit more of what president obama had to say. take a listen. >> if at the end of six months it turns out we can't make a deal, we're no worse off, and in fact we have greater leverage with the international community to continue to apply sanctions and
: lessons on life, love and courage." rick, thanks very much for joining us. talk about this relationship between president mandela and president obama. >> you know, wolf, i thought the president was very eloquent yesterday, talking about what president mandela meant to him. in many ways i think mandela was partly responsible for barack obama's own political awakening. one of the great legacies of mandela particularly in america is that it was an awakening for so many people that people were looking at south africa, this land that with terrible prejudice, terrible authoritarian government and we were looking at it as almost a proxy for what had happened in america during the civil rights movement and i think it awakened and it was a revelation for many, many americans. >> i'm sure president obama and i'm sure you'll agree was deeply disappointed when he was in south africa earlier this year, with his family, he was not able to go and meet president mandela, because he was so gravely ill. i'm sure he would have loved to have done that, but he obviously couldn't. he'll head to south africa
house said that the president didn't know his uncle, now we learn that mr. obama not only knew him but he lived with him. the question is, is this a big deal? we're talking about it right now to break it down a historian at princeton and david gergen who joins us from atlanta, he is a cnn senior political analyst and a former white house adviser to four presidents. gentlemen, thank you for being here. david, let's start with you. you know what it's like to work at a white house and deal with media questions especially on sensitive issues, how, however, does a white house put out false information like it did on the president's relationship to an uncle? >> well, let me say for beginners, i don't think this is a big deal. i think it's a modest deal. i think it reflerkts a sloppiness within the white house operation. but we've had other presidents who have had relatives who have rather inconvenient histories, let us say, and there's always been a fairly strong effort by the white house staff to distance the president from that inconvenient relative if possible. that seems to what has
, congresswoman. >> if you want to talk about a war on women, look no further than this health care law. >> that's right. the gop wants you to believe president obama's health care law is the real war on women. oh, the irony. especially since just last week we learned that gop men are being tutored on how to talk to women. and according to a staff at one of those meetings, quote, some of these guys have a lot to learn. where would they possibly get that idea? >> if it's a legitimate rape, the female body has ways to try to shut that whole thing down. >> even when life begins in that horrible situation of rape, that it is something that god intended to happen. >> the incidents of rape resulting in pregnancy are very low. >> well, maybe they can get some pointers on how to talk to women from the real boss of the party. listen to what he said today. >> -- yourself staring looking at, casually glancing at a woman. but you know that it's now socially taboo. you shouldn't be doing it. and you think everybody is noticing you doing it and condemning you in their minds. you walk up to the woman and say,
on and on of dignitaries. >> of course, with president obama and three of his predecessors going to south africa, you can imagine what robin was talking about, and that is security and the kind of complex situation they're dealing with potentially a nightmare. secret service had very little time to prepare for the trip. athena jones is joining us at the white house. we're very much aware of what it takes. there's not a lot of advance work when you have the limited amount of time. air force one expected to touch down what, early tomorrow morning? >> early tomorrow morning. i think about 1:00 a.m., they'll be making a fuel stop on the way. bottom line, these are the kinds of trips that take weeks and months to prepare. this was compressed into a very short time line. the spokesman for the secret service say they've done things in less time and an they've known that any son mandela was ill for some time and they've been working with the state department and south african government. they have agents based in pretoria and rome able to work on logistics necessary 37 they're the same protocols are required any
. what could cause the price >>> president obama back at the white house right now after a brand-new interview at a local university. >> chris matthews, host of "hardball" is here to talk about his exclusive interview. >> you played hardball with the president down from our station. we imagine you talked about health care. >> i did. i got the question people are really asking. the poll numbers are down everywhere. it's a sense the government isn't being tightly controlled. people aren't getting follow through. getting it executed was a problem. i asked what the management system is. i asked him about, you know, this dysfunction in washington, it's the number one concern right now. politicians can't do their job and compromise. we are under strict -- in terms of his words. he was wonderful, when i heard the speech, it seemed parallel to what pope francis is saying with economic justice, especially the poor people. he was really, i'm sure he never said this before. he started talking about what it meant to him and what he's in politics for and why. later on, he gave a portrait of p
're going to be talking about. if he doesn't, this could be one of the issues we think about when we think about president obama. >> the white house yesterday called a report about obama's meetings with sebelius misleading andist based on a "false premise." >> texas, oklahoma, arkansas, if you haven't heard yet, it is freezing maybe. that will stay with us. jim, a man who doesn't stand still. but jim has afib, atrial fibrillation -- an irregular heartbeat, not caused by a heart valve problem. that puts jim at a greater risk of stroke. for years, jim's medicine tied him to a monthly trip to the clinic to get his blood tested. but now, with once-a-day xarelto®, jim's on the move. jim's doctor recommended xarelto®. like warfarin, xarelto® is proven effective to reduce afib-related stroke risk. but xarelto® is the first and only once-a-day prescription blood thinner for patients with afib not caused by a heart valve problem. that doesn't require routine blood monitoring. so jim's not tied to that monitoring routine.

a couple of things to talk about. i want to ask you about the big front page politico piece. the paper tiger. glenn thrush's piece. >> glenn has been looking at the weakness of the obama cabinet. there's frustration in the cabinet and on capitol hill. they are putting a republican in the cabinet. a defense secretary. and people feel sees disappointed folks and at a time how he'll define how to be his defense secretary. he's leading the department in a period of entrenchment. does he fight those? does he go along with the white house in trying to trim spending as much as obama would like. it's interesting to see how much frustration there is in the cabinet not just hagel, but also sebelius. one of the reasons when you have these incidents like you do with the health care system -- >> why is general frustration. inside the white house do they think they are incompetent. >> they are not living up to standards with hagel. he's kind of lackluster when they thought he would come in there and be much more forceful. >> why did they think that? if they asked anyone in his own party who was a re
'll talk about that in ten minutes. back to you. >>> it's been just over two months since the debut of hea h healthcare.gov. the obama administration says it's working faster and better but it's not perfect. so what's next? nbc's tracie potts is live on capitol hill with a look at where things stand. good morning, tracie. >> reporter: hi, richard. good morning. what's next is to figure out if it's working well enough to get millions signed up by the beginning of the year. they pushed that deadline now so you have until december 23rd to sign up. the question is, is the system going to work? a lot of us were eating leftovers and enjoying the holiday when the administration came out with the latest report, so we'll recap for you 50,000 people they say at a time can now use the website that's 800,000 today with very few errors, about 1% the administration says, most of the time. but critics say this is a really big problem still with this website. you may be able to sign up for an insurance plan but the insurance companies calculating payments to pay for your insurance plan if you get subsidi
spectrum. but none really walked and talked the way that mandela did. his legacy in south africa will be unmatched of that of anyone we can think about. >> we are awaiting president obama. he is set to give a statement on the death of nelson mandela from the white house. what impacts has nelson mandela had on u.s. president politics? >> two things. first of all, i did want to make a point, which in south africa, there is actually going to be a lot of impact here. he a.n.c. has elections coming up, and they have had a hard time of it. the economy has had a difficult time. the a.n.c. has never gotten since 2% of the vote mandela was in charge of the country. they were set to under perform, and now they are not. now the vote turn out will be great, and it will be very solidly pro a.n.c. the legacy of mandela is really going to matter there. for the united states, in recent years mandela has had the kind of impact that martin luther king had. -- unifying union figure that gets beyond race. some of the best moments that you see in american statesmanship reflects the kind of rhetoric
you. >>> joining us coming up, the white house and its allies are going on offense for obama care. but i'm questioning what offense. still ahead, vice president joe biden in asia, pushing the agenda that has american workers very nervous. and all they're talking about is a fly zone. we'll get into that. but next, i'm taking your questions, "ask ed live" just ahead. stay tuned. you're watching "the ed show" on msnbc. thrusters at 30%! i can't get her to warp. losing thrusters. i need more power. give me more power!

we've been talking about there's an enormous push behind getting some kind of a living wage or minimum wage passed. nothing much is happening in washington. president obama was in favor of a $9 minimum wage. now in favor of a $10.10-minute mum wage. not a lot going on in congress. in the states you can see there's a lot more going on. california recently passed a bill to raise the minimum wage from $8 to $10. the highest in the country. district of columbia they are about to pass, i think, legislation that would take it up over $11. doing this in concert with two maryland counties because you want to avoid the factor if you raise the minimum wage in one place, walmart threatened not to go to washington. this is a controversial subject. in the context the bottom fifth of american families have lost 15% of their real income since the year 1999. these are hurting people. >> sam stein, this is a central issue from extending unemployment benefits -- you know, progressives have always been pushing for higher minimum wages, conservatives have been talking about keeping the minimum
